Web Site Status

September 1, 2014: Server Maintenance and upgrades

Planned server maintenance and upgrades may interrupt some web site functions such as displaying listing data and images. Any such interruptions are likely to be brief, such as 15 minutes or less. The upgrades are being made to add more speed to the return of listing search results, and to enable the addition of new services planned for introduction in the near future.

September 17, 2013: NWMLS Approves Data License

The Northwest Multiple Listing Service has approved the Data License necessary for this site to bypass third party IDX data service providers used by nearly all real estate brokers for real estate web site search functionality. This data license enables David North to refresh NWMLS listing data in this web site up to 96 times as frequently as other real estate web sites' NWMLS listing data is refreshed, so clients and the general public will be able to get the most up to date listing and status information right here. Search, save, notify and track functionality is being built to work exactly the way you want it to work, using the best and most frequently updated data from the NWMLS.

August 17, 2013: Web Site Transitioned to New Server

The web site was successfully transitioned to a new server which has been provisioned to support the addition of new features and services for clients. There was no down time associated with the transition.

August 9, 2013: Third Party IDX Data Provider Service Interruption

Shortly after 5:00 p.m. Friday, August 9, 2013 a third party IDX data provider discontinued service with short notice in apparent retaliation after their failure to update real estate listing data on a timely basis over a prolonged period of time had been reported to the Northwest Multiple Listing Service (NWMLS) by David North. NWMLS requires that third party IDX data providers update NWMLS real estate listing data every 24 hours. This third party IDX data provider had been found not updating NWMLS real estate listing data for as many as three days at a time, or more. Rather than providing the service to this web site in conformance with NWMLS requirements and retaining a long time customer, they chose to abruptly discontinue service to this web site and refund pre-paid fees for the service they refused to provide.

This disruption affects all end users who use this web site for searching real estate listings, saving searches and listings, and receiving automated e-mail notifications of new listings that meet saved search criteria. As a temporary measure, various links have been changed to direct users to pages of the Coldwell Banker Bain web site, where some similar features are available. If you are affected by the loss of saved searches, saved listings and/or automated e-mail notifications of new listings that meet saved search criteria and need help re-establishing these in the Coldwell Banker Bain web site, please contact David North for help.

A new Internet web server has been provisioned with sufficient capabilities to support development and operation of a greatly enhanced real estate data service, superior to the service that had been provided by the third party IDX data provider, even when their service was in compliance with NWMLS listing data updating requirements. This involves a major development project that will take some time and expense to complete, which will be implemented in stages. Progress and projections will be posted here.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
